Julieta Gil’s Photogrammatic Memory of Feminist Uprising in Mexico City Wins 2020 Lumen Prize
Mexican artist Julieta Gil wins Gold at the 2020 Lumen Prize for Nuestra Victoria, Our Victory (image), a recent series of photogrammetry reconstructions of the defaced Angel of Independence. The Mexico City landmark had been at the centre of the August 2019 protests against violence towards women. Derived from countless photographs, the work constitutes a digital archive of collective memory, as government forces began boarding up the monument only hours after the demonstrations.
